RGBI Pointclouds

Question asked by Thomas Koch on Nov 24, 2015
Latest reply on Dec 18, 2015 by Thomas Koch

There is a request to not only add RGB information into LAS pointcloud files but also NIR information when creating (matching) a point cloud from multichannel imagery. LAS typically has flags to describe RGB. An idea would be to add this information into the intensity layer - this, however will create a file that is not at all standard and might lead to confusion when somebody uses the LAS file and expects to have intensity values in the intensity channel which are in fact NIR values.

Has anybody an idea where additional information could be saved in a LAS file ideally?

Thanks

Thomas
